Top Ten Words to Describe the United States

America is an excellent country, or a horrible country, depends on how you look at it. We are one of the top economies in the world, but we don't have free health care yet. We may have invented many things such as cars, but we're also one of the most obese countries in the world.

The Top Ten

1 Revolutionary

Who was the first country to break away and completely break down other nations and their political beliefs and use a mixture of those as the backbone of our nation so it could thrive and succeed and prove our enemies that we could make it from nothing? The United States of America did.

Honestly we have been through so much yet we still stand tall, and with Trump as president we need to be united as one revolutionary country, now is no the time to play the he said she said game. Now in the time to be Americans!

What? What country invented both apple and windows, which are the best electronics companies IN THE WORLD? ? !

They didn't make it from nothing, they were English that travelled there and took over. If anything it means English are revolutionary

2 Idiots

From my many visits to the States, I've learned that the stereotypical American idiots are far outnumbered by welcoming, kind people.

That's it... If 98% of a country are idiots, the words idiots describes it best

The people that I met on my last visit to California were actually very polite, and did a lot to make my family welcome there. There are some parts of Britain which don't have this virtue. And forgive my smugness, but a few of them openly said they loved the accent!

Just because you'll find an idiot in America doesn't mean we're all idiots! The idiots stand out and choose to look like that even after realizing how ignorant they look! So before people stereotype and say America is dumb, let's think that there are also smart people in America (which actually make up the majority in America because of our schooling) and there are idiots in other countries as well.

3 Powerful

Because chuck Norris and John Cena live in america

Number 1 military and the world's sole superpower.

We are the best Country in the world and no doubt about it


4 Large

But Russia is still bigger...

Yeah, the people are large...

Wait, you meant the size of the country itself!?

... As well as Canada. This word describes a lot of Americans, as well.

without a doubt

5 Misunderstood

Obviously america is misunderstood because I read through every single comment and some of these people are so negative towards America! America is just like anywhere else (pretty much) just we're called Americans and we have a democracy. we have good things and bad things, just like Japan, France, Spain, Canada, anywhere. so instead of everyone talking crap about America to make yourself feel better, look at yourself and your country and think, are we perfect with no flaws at all? yep that's what I thought. I'm sorry for ranting but I have to get back to my homework so bye. :3

6 Convenient
7 Obesity

The United States is known for their fast food and being unhealthy.

A third isn't THAT much.

Okay we're fat, I accept it.

Almost all the kids in the schools I have been at are at now are not fat or obese most of them are a normal size or underweight, barely any if any people even try to be skinny and they still eat their full share of food.

I have never met an obese person in America. If people are saying 1/3 is obese, than how come I don't see them? Like anywhere.

8 Charitable

Tragic earthquake in Nepal YESTERDAY.
India will have its teams there first, they are by far the closest, US has more sophisticated rescue equipment, already on the way, and already leading financial aid effort.
Before that, pick your disaster, Philippine Hurricane, Indonesian Tsunami, US gave much more time, effort, personnel, equipment, and money than whatever pathetic hellhole you live in.

Americans give more to charity than any other country.

America gives so much to other nations for example, Africa and even though they can't really pay us back or trade with them we continue to give because as Americans we have the opppurtuntity to give and keep giving.

Tell me, when was the last time the U.S. Helped another nation. Even if you could, other countries already did that as well, so if anything, THEY should also receive some regonition.

9 Obama

God keep him and kill trump

Obama is great; yet, people seem to lack political enlightenment because how can Obama pass any law if it can't get to his desk?! Unlike the progressive America, our political parties in the House and Senate go head in head with each other, forgetting that COMPROMISE is key to success. However, everyone now seems to seek their own interest in America, even America itself. (I'll blame your government teachers and the media bias which induces ignorance)

Obama: the person Americans blame everything on

Obama sucks at a lot keep trump

10 Young

I'm so young like a toddeler

The Contenders

11 Imperfect

No one is perfect.. especially us in America, we do many things wrong. But, guess what? Everyone makes mistakes.

There's no doubt we're not perfect. Every country has their flaws, even America.

No country is perfect but america is a really great place nonetheless.

It's part of human nature, even Americans have their limits

12 Democracy

Famous quote from America's staunch ally Churchill: "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others."

You can propose a bill anytime you want to. You can vote on your representative and senators, and you can vote for the president. So everyone who passes the actual bill should be someone you're okay with. At least the greater of two evils. Why do you need to see the bills? You have representation. We barely pass any regardless, and that's because we can no longer agree on anything.

Actually, the United States system of government is a republic; some similar ideas but not a true democracy.

Haha you just got proven wring by a seventh grader, ME

13 Diverse

You are Trolling up and down this poll, spewing hatred without a single specific, which could easily be refuted. Surprised the OP allows it.

Um Hello? Our country was made by different groups of people coming together and your saying we aren't diverse? Do you know what the word diverse means?

America may call themselves a "melting pot" all they want, though the fact is that other countries are equally as diverse, if not more. Hell, other countries actually embrace and welcome it; their melting pot actually melts. This is obviously totally unlike those racist Americans.

I think america is very diverse and getting more so. Also I have never met a racist person in the US and I live in america, and proud of it.

14 Successful

I think America is highly successful. To build ourselfs up from nothing through hardships and become a strong, fairly wealthy, country that can provide for and protect its people.

15 Freedom

Great word to describe America!

Do you have any idea how painful and sad we had to fought for our freedom for centuries. Freedom isn't easy to earn but we don't give up.

This one makes me laugh... we aren't as free as people say.. the government watches us, yes. Damn, I mean Obama isn't doing anything helpful, he's making everything worse... (sorry for the language.. :) )

Yas queen wait we don't have a queen SEE

16 Unhealthy

This is a lie, not everyone is unhealthy in America.

Some people eat healthy foods.

This is especially true for our lack of free healthcare.

The government can't tell me what to eat freedom.

17 La-la Land

Magical place full of idiots and unicorns

They live in a La-La-Land



18 Racist

Tronald dump

THaT's aMeRicA! 1!

Yes slavery


19 Beautiful

Disgusting? I guess that is your valueless opinion. Please feel free to stay away, don't accept any money from the US, don't accept any assistance of any kind, don't use anything invented here, and especially please reverse any border defenses that we may have made for your grandparents over the past 100 years. We certainly won't miss you.

No.. why must you run us down that way.. ? We are not disgusting, sure we eat a lot, so what? I'm sure and I know people in other countries eat as much as we do. Yes, our president is horrible.. I dislike Obama, and I surely DO NOT want Hillary as our next president... but seriously? Disgusting?

Our United States has fallen so low towards the pit that China and Russia are better, same with Europe and even Great Britain, Thanks Obama and 9/11.

The Rocky Mountains, the Florida Keys, the Grand Canyon, San Franciso Bay, Yellowstone, and more.

20 Ghetto

Stfu please & thanks

The ghetto makes you strong and independent. - HawaiianPanda

Yeah NO...

If we ain't have no ghetto we wouldent be here

21 Dreams

We Americans had a dream of having freedom from Britain Andy the government itself since the 17th century. We Americans go by the American dream. We have fought are independence for centuries( men and women) we all have equal rights.( except for kids). In cas you don't know I'm a teenager

We follow the American dream. For ages American men and women have died to make this country safe and free. And we honor them for keeping the american Dream.


22 Native

Not rly because we “STOLE” America from the native Americans

23 Violent

Not true. We just imprison more people than other countries because it's BIG BUSINESS! Any idiot knows that America is ALL ABOUT THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR!

Funny that the OP, TA won't print the inconvenient truth that this is false.

Lol not all of us

Violence is always the answer

24 Self-Absorbed

I think America helps a lot of other places out all the time. We are sending aid to other places all the time and the people in america donate to several good causes in and out of country. Also, is it wrong for a country to protect itself or try to fix its own problems first? There are stereotypes about people in america being self absorbed but it is not teue, the people who live in America are kind and caring and generous.

I am American, and I understand what other countries go through... Somewhat, I don't just think about us Americans. After all, we don't have any huge wars going on over here.. -sigh- Not everyone is like this in America... :(

Not remotely correct, the USA gives substantially more foreign aid than any other country, and also its citizens give more private donations to charities than any other country.

Got the blinkers on and can only see what is going on within their own country. don't know there are other Countries in this world and what is going on within them.

25 Awesome

America is a wonderful place filled with beauty and freedom. Almost everone who lives there will greet you with a kind smile. We were built out of hard work and struggles and managed to build into a great and powerful, free place that can provide for its people and allows them to make their own choices. And I think that is pretty awesome.

I think there might've been a mistake here.

I know I'm going to get a lot of downvotes for saying this but... I love America! I live there after all.
